    I love to crochet but don't like fuss. I have PTSD (Post Traumatic Shock) and working with soft yarn and soothing colors is healing for me. This yarn creates beautiful patterns with long smooth color ways. Personally I think most yarn will knot in the skein if you aren't careful, and my generation learned to roll balls of yarn to get around this. I use a box my husband made 30+ years ago that holds the yarn balls so they don't escape while feeding the flow of yarn smoothly through a hole in the top. A coffee can would work as well. ;-)

    I chose this because the baby-to-come's mother will be wanting to wash often anything the baby uses. She's fanatic about that, and I wanted it to be easy so she'd feel easy about using the blanket. It's not as soft as I had imagined, though it's really OK. I couldn't tell the balance of colors in the range I chose from the skein, so I didn't get the amount of yellow I was hoping for. Another time I would have looked further than my nearby store for the original skeins. What I bought here was an extra one, since I wanted a little larger sized blanket than they had yarn for. I wish I had made the effort to look further, though it will be fine. I think I should have held out for a cotton blend. Since the yarn is what do you call it (a chainette?) it has a single fine thread that makes it all up. If one strand breaks it's possible for the whole yarn to come apart, creating a break. This happened far down the web which took some time to repair. I later learned a way to splice this kind of yarn by threading a yarn needle with the next end down the center of the chain.

      Comments about Ella Rae Seasons:

      I've made 5 sweaters (all top down pullovers) for my 2 girls (ages 8 & 14) w/ this yarn over the past 3 years, and recently bought enough for 4 more as they outgrow the current ones. Mostly acrylic, but for kids who stuff their sweaters into backpacks, and leave them in the yard, this yarn works great. Has a lot of yardage, knits up quickly on size 10 needles, washes well, is very soft and warm, and can even be passed on when they outgrow it, because the yarn holds up very well, and a sweater shaver takes care of all the little fuzz balls. Colors are lovely, and they get a lot of compliments, but as w/ all stripey yarns, a join that breaks the color sequence is annoying. Doesn't happen often, but I buy an extra skein to color match the sequence, then use the extra bits and pieces to make a hat or a scarf later. I'm saving my nice yarn for when they are older; for kids, this is fabulous!

                The colors were so dark and drab, not like the photo at all. I sent a very nice e-mail to ask about the problem. I got a very poor e-mail back which told me that I should go to another site and look up items made with it as I didn't understand the self stripe as I knit. First I had used this yarn before and I crochet. So I returned the e-mail with a very to the point, your product is bad and requested a return UPS label. Yarn was returned. I would
                love to try other color, but am afraid to do so.

                  I've used this yarn for a cowl, hat & mitts. I am now knitting a basic blocks afghan. This yarn knits up nicely & the colors are really great.

                  I was really impressed with the delivery time on my yarn. Really fast service & the yarn was a good price also.

                      This yarn is a favorite of the members of the Shawl Ministry at church. It has interesting colorways, knits up quickly, only takes 3 skeins per shawl, and has a pleasing texture. It makes a cozy comforting shawl. My only wish is that there were even more colors to choose from.

                      Comments about Ella Rae Seasons:

                      This is a nicely dyed yarn with a great variety of colors which don't just hop in and out - a long portion devoted to each changing color. I'm making two Entrelac scarves and love the way the color comes in blocks. It's a good combo of silk and other fibers. It knits fairly quickly but the yarn tends to twist up fairly quickly if you don't keep a grip on it. So far, it feels somewhat scratchy but that will probably soften when washed and blocked.
